Having regard to the quality (or lack thereof) of my singing voice, how about I threaten to record if enough people DO NOT contribute to the fundraiser?

You don't have to sing it - you can say it, chant it, shout it, whisper it... anything as long as you DO IT!

And I need more people... fast! It will be pathetic with only a few voices.

I am having a whale of a time editing this, but there is room for loads more people - just one verse, or even one line, spoken or sung, and some boom-de-ya-das.

You will regret not doing it when you hear this magnificent production! :lol:

And I guess the singers will be more or less anonymous right? So no need to worry about repercussions! :D

I boom de-ya-daed a lot. Listening to it all through, it's not that bad, it's just not amazing. I can't wait to hear the whole thing though.
So little space, so much to say.

Stuff to play around with, use what you like if anything. There are a few versions of boom-de-ya-da's in there. :)

Got them, thanks Lucy and PV. Thanks also to everyone else who has contributed.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE! If I find more in my folder in the morning I shall be delighted. :) I think it will be the most edited 1'20" in LibriVox history. :lol:

My 15 year old son is in your folder. He says this around the house all the time! (as per Stephen Hawkins)

Wouldn't it be fancy if we did a video with this, too? Webcam clips of people recording?

Hi Ruth,

with the understanding that this is going to be completely anonymized, and never to be spoken of again, I have uploaded something for you.

Can't wait to hear the finished version! :mrgreen:
Cheers,
Ava.
